In recent correspondence with the fine folks at Lifatech regarding application of their glass fiber Toslink cabling, the following arose, you may want to file it away for future reference:
"I am not aware of any minimum length for Toslink. We have made some in the ~6" range for connections between portable devices. The only risk there is bending the cable too tightly right at the connectors which could potentially break fibers, however short of physical damage I did not have anyone report degraded sound quality with a cable that size."
These guys seem to know everything there is about engineering optical fiber cable.
